ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
Samantha Verdugo (she/her) is a senior at Hunter College studying Sociology and Public Health, and an intern at Birth Bruja. She's deeply interested in becoming a life-long healer and therapist that centers holistic healing, culturally sensitive therapy, and decolonial practices. Samantha sees myself doing this kind of work with children and adults of all ages.
Eri Guajardo Johnson (she/they) is a bi-racial, Midwest-born birthworker, rape crisis peer counselor, birth consultant for trauma survivors, community educator, and host of Birth Bruja. Drawing upon their 13+ years of experience supporting survivors of sexual assault, studying indigenous Mexican and Indian healing modalities, and obtaining her masters in Women, Gender, Spirituality & Social Justice from the California Institute of Integral Studies- she approaches healing & justice work as a mechanism for individual and collective liberation.
The Birth Bruja platform is a manifestation of Eri’s passion for birth work as a spiritual, liberational & decolonial practice. Join us for monthly Mentorship Circles, free resources, and Community Workshops that span the full range of this transformative work.
